He Knew He Would Not Live Long Enough To See His Daughter’s Wedding Day. What He Did Was Beautiful.
Jim Zetz is only 62 years old but he has stage-4 pancreatic cancer. With only months to live, Jim would not be able to see Josie, his 11-year-old daughter, get married. Knowing this, Lindsay Villatoro, a friend close to the Zetz family, arranged a surprise that they would cherish forever. To give Jim a chance to celebrate one of his daughter’s most important life moments, Villatoro arranged a mock wedding on Josie’s 11th birthday. [googlead]
Villatoro was able to get donations for the catering, wedding cake, Jim’s suit, and Josie’s wedding dress, which came from LA Fashion Week.
“Your dad may not get to see you get married, but he is here to walk you down the aisle today.”
It was an incredibly touching ceremony for a beautiful family.
It wasn’t easy for anyone involved…
But no matter what, their love and precious memories will live on forever.
